This map shows more than 2000 of the largest and most notable renewable energy facilities located in the European Economic Area (EEA), the United Kingdom, and Switzerland. Each facility is depicted by a distinct icon corresponding to a specific type of renewable energy. For all facilities names and other relevant data are given, allowing for easy identification. Where relevant production capacity or volume of products is also indicated.
Each of the countries on the map is provided with accompanying graphical information for 2018-2019, illustrating the share of domestic production in relation to total primary energy consumption (or share of domestic consumption in total production), as well as the share of energy production from various types of renewable sources and total renewable power capacity. Similar data is presented separately for the European Union as a whole. Comparative statistics of world GNI per capita in 2018, PPP (current international $) and CO2 total emissions (%) are provided for geographical regions or subregions.
In addition, for a number of countries generalized indicators are provided, which correspond to one of three quantitative ranges that illustrate the level of development of specific renewable energy technologies: heating & cooling from heat pumps; number of hydrogen fuelling stations; number of biomethane plants; domestic biogas production by region; and small hydropower plant installed capacity.
Countries with a high concentration of facilities are presented in zoomed-in sidebars, including Austria and Southern Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
The geographic placement of infrastructural facilities on the map has been made using actual coordinates, though where facilities were too closely located to each other they were deliberately separated to avoid overlapping.

Information about the renewable energy facilities in Europe shown on the map has been collected from numerous sources, including data from government statistical agencies, press releases, information for investors and energy companies’ project portfolios, scientific laboratories’ research results, technical exhibition documents, open-source data, reports from regional news sources, data of our own reporters, and reviews published by different environmental organizations.
For each of the renewable energy facilities, the following data was obtained using various sources of information:
- confirmation of the presence of the facility and its specific type of renewable energy production;
- exact or approximate coordinates of the facility;
-available characteristics of the facility (capacity or production volume, operating or under construction, comparative data in relation to other similar facilities in the country)
